Closets and Tears

Wouldn't it be awesome to have one of these to die for, must have, dream closets? I seriously would just hide in there and look at all of my beautiful clothes and shoes, that of course, I would have to buy, so that my wardrobe was worthy of my closet. Make sense? I knew it would.
Today I went through four bins and packed up all of Stella's 0-12 month clothes to ship to Utah. There were a lot of memories in those bins of clothes, like the outfit we brought her home from the hospital in; or the little, silver ballet flats that she wore to her temple sealing; or the itty bitty jammies with the yellow ducks on them. I cried (and it still makes me cry). Stella said, "Mommy sad." She then sat on my lap and gave me one of her little hugs--the ones where she squeezes tight and gives a little pat on my back. And then...she put a magnet down my shirt, and the moment pretty much ended there. Can I not have a serious conversation with anyone in this house without someone trying to put something down my shirt? Sheesh!

  2. Jamie,
    Love, love, love your blog. And if I'm ever at your house...I promise I won't put anything down your shirt. Your mom though - that's a different story. I've had her flip ice cream down my shirt before during one of our drives/talks and she didn't even know it. I didn't even tease her about it. It's been my secret until now, but I think I can trust you with it.
